Propellerhead Software invites its users to the Reason 6.5 beta test. This new version of the sequencer is equipped with its own plug-in format: Rack Extensions. Propellerhead Software has announced three own Rack Extensions : Radical Piano (see picture above), Pulsar and Polar.
Radical Piano is a modeled piano plug-in. This means it does not use samples. The user can create his own piano sounds. Below you can listen to the first audio demo of Radical Piano:
Pulsar is a modulation plug-in with a dual LFOs, a powerful little synthesizer says Propellerhead. More information will follow. Polar is a classic harmonizer/pitch shifter for stereo widening, harmonizing and granular effects. Prices (or free?) are not yet available.
Besides the new Rack Extensions by Propellerhead Software itself, there are also a lot of new third-party developers working on this new plug-in format. These are certainly not the least: U-he, Softube, Rob Papen, FXpansion, GForce Software, Peff, Sugar Bytes, Korg and Sonic Charge.
The Dutch developer Rob Papen is currently working on a Rack Extension version of Predator. Reason users will definitely be excited about this great synth.
